Yes, I proposed on her birthday back in May, we live in two separate cities that are a 3 hr drive apart. Took the afternoon off to drive back to surprise her. She was already pretty stunned that I showed up at her door with roses in hand. She knew that I had to drive back to work the next day.
I took her out for a nice dinner and had a great time. Near the end of our meal I surprised her with a gift - a trip to Disney World! She was completely shocked and somewhat in disbelief as we were driving in the car. I had planned on this so that she would be too distracted to notice I took a small detour back to our old High School. I managed to convince her to go out for a walk on the trail behind the school.
We walked over to our ''usual'' spot by a ledge that overlooked the city. And as the sun was setting, I got down on one knee and proposed to her :) A very memorable birthday indeed heheh. I don''t have the pics on me right now but I''ll try to send one over when I get a chance.
Oh yeah, she absolutely LOVES the ring.In fact, that reminds me, how does the process of getting a custom wedding band work at Whiteflash? We found that the curvature of the ring makes it hard to find a wedding band that fits nicely on her finger with the e-ring. It still early right now, but we''re thinking that going the custom route for the band might be the best option for us.
The planning process is well underway since we got back from Orlando a few weeks ago (awesome trip btw). Today is actually our 10 year anniversary since we started dating :) Our wedding is exactly one year from today (July 17, 2011). Let the countdown begin!
